Community By Design

Home extends beyond four walls and a roof. Home is the community within which you live, work, and play. Your community should be as welcoming and comfortable as your house.

"Our ultimate goal is to create livable, walkable, sustainable communities for a diverse group of people," says President Jamie Bigelow of Bigelow Homes.

That goal hasn't gone unnoticed. After being featured as Professional Builder® magazine's 2005 National Builder of the Year, Chicago-based Bigelow Homes received a call from a city council 1,200 miles away. "They saw how desirable our communities were and asked us to move to Texas. We now offer both Plum Creek in Kyle, Texas, and Blanco River Village in San Marcos, Texas, and were voted Austin's 2010 Builder of the Year," Bigelow says.

Unique Settings
Answering the call for single-family living within a close-knit neighborhood is the Courtyard Series, where each Courtyard home faces a communal green space instead of a street. Relax on your front porch, chat with neighbors, or head out back to your private yard—all while enjoying the professionally landscaped setting.

Homes in sections like: "The Parks," "The Enclave on Hole 7," and "Live Oak Park" – a grouping of homes built under the canopy of old growth oaks and surrounding a shady park – all within Plum Creek, are located near trail systems, the Plum Creek Golf Club, and Negley Fishing Lake.

Close out on the Greenbelt! Rush Haven Greenway, an enclave of 20 homes surrounding a private park within Blanco River Village, offers beautiful, private outdoor space that is maintained for you—no need for laborious upkeep.

Exceptional Features
In addition to gorgeous, friendly communities, the distinctively styled homes feature luxury carpeting, high ceilings, spacious kitchens, Texas-sized showers, and two-car garages, all with Bigelow Homes' quality construction. "Energy efficiency is a major highlight," Bigelow says, noting Bigelow Homes' famous cooling guarantee that ensures residents' air conditioning bills will not exceed $400 per year. This represents a savings of $1,000-$2,500 per year in Texas. With an emphasis on building communities and relationships, Bigelow Homes offers not just an exceptional house but an exceptional quality of life.
